CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared non-surgical fat reduction procedure. It is the only treatment to use controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat deposits that are unresponsive to natural methods of fat loss, such as diet and exercise.
Muse Plastic Surgery, led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones, provides CoolSculpting body contouring to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding communities.
Male Chest Fat Reduction
People who have heard or read about CoolSculpting may know that it effectively reduces the number of fat cells on the love handles, abdomen, and other regions. But did you know that this treatment may also be appropriate for use on male chest fat?
Pseudo-gynecomastia is a common condition characterized by excess male breast tissue. This can be a cause of self-consciousness or embarrassment in males of all ages. While pseudo-gynecomastia is often a normal phenomenon, it can adversely affect the quality of life for men, making them feel ill at ease in removing their shirts when swimming, at the beach, or in intimate settings.
The treatment of pseudo-gynecomastia can enhance self-esteem and body image for men of all ages, ranging from teens to males in their 60s, and often beyond. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Wright Jones provides CoolSculpting for male chest fat reduction to appropriate candidates.
Using CoolSculpting on the Male Chest
Stubborn fat pockets impact not only women, but also men. Therefore, CoolSculpting is not meant only for the female body. In case a man is in the habit of hiding behind baggy clothes and has been considering male breast reduction, they might want to evaluate CoolSculpting closely instead.
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment option. Therefore, the CoolSculpting specialist may be able to use this innovative fat-freezing procedure to reduce chest fat without downtime.
The most common treatment areas tend to be the love handles, tummy, and thighs, some experts use CoolSculpting for male breast reduction. Since there is presently no CoolSculpting applicator meant for male chest treatment, this would be considered off-label use.
Results of a Research Study
Researchers assessed ten men with pseudogynecomastia to understand whether non-surgical fat reduction with cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting) is a safe and effective treatment option. These researchers were testing whether the fatty tissue only on the chest could be addressed with CoolSculpting to offer effective outcomes.
Following two CoolSculpting treatment sessions spaced six weeks apart, the seven subjects who completed the study noticed a visible reduction in fatty tissue thickness in the chest area treated with CoolSculpting in comparison to the untreated side of the chest.
Additionally, the authors of the study also stated that the adverse effects were mild and transient. CoolSculpting appeared to be safe and effective for the reduction of male chest fat in moderate amounts.
Am I an Appropriate CoolSculpting Candidate?
The only way to establish candidacy is to consult an experienced CoolSculpting specialist.
During this appointment, the CoolSculpting expert will discuss the patient’s eligibility for the procedure and the potential outcomes that they are likely to see. The candidacy and potential outcomes differ between people, whether they are being treated for male chest, female love handles, or another area.
CoolSculpting does not present an alternative to the traditional methods of weight loss, including diet and exercise. However, the procedure can help tone body areas that have been resistant to such traditional weight loss techniques.
